Some Pictures from the very successful Lions Club Golf Classic this year which raised much needed funds for Amber, Kilkennys Womens Refuge.
Our beautiful city needed sprucing up after the long winter! The Kilkenny Lions Club and Keep Kilkenny Beautiful Committee have joined forces to tackle some derelict areas in Kilkenny City with a monthly clean-up of specific areas until the end of August. Together we can do more! 🤗👍
These areas are not in public ownership but are visible to the public. The May efforts proved very successful, as evidenced by the large amount of litter collected in just one private derelict area! Come and join us for the June 14th clean-up effort, and help KEEP KILKENNY BEAUTIFUL.#TogetherWeCanDoMore #KeepKilkennyBeautiful

Among those local organisations that benefitted were: St. Vincent De Paul; The Good Shepherd Centre; the Amber Refuge; The Church of Ireland and Kilkenny Social Services.
